Police sealed off a large area after the grim find was made on Friday but as yet have still to release any more details about the victim or the circumstances.
A West Yorkshire Police spokeswoman said this weekend: “We are still waiting on an identification but due to the Easter holiday bank weekend we are unlikely to have an answer before the return of the working week.”
Police would not confirm if there were any suspicious circumstances nor whether they knew the sex of the body.
